I think hornbeam is a very possible host for olidus too.

Well, not sure what to say….

Well, there are oaks on this hill side, and I think there is an oak leaf in the shot there actually. But I went back up the hill today, and I found more. Some were over 100 feet away from any oaks. But what they were all closer to in general was actually the random hornbeam in the area. Perhaps C. olidus also grows with hornbeam?

What I call Cortinarius olidus grows with hardwoods (oak and/or hazel), but it looks pretty close..
Have you checked with olidoamethysteus?
